  1. I hear great things about these guys locally in Cleveland, same with Yellow. They both also seem very very busy right now.

    I’m on the west side/west park area. So right now turns out everyone is getting screwed at our barn on night shuttle. For school start up’s we’re kind of not doing to good. I’m just getting out of the truck now 511 miles tonight not bad, but I was talking with the guys it’s not good. We’ve got major dispatch issues and our case count is not great. Things aren’t good. Take what I can get for now. Were getting BW3 after the first of the year, but that's not going to do anything, we've got so much room that it's not going to matter. We sent a set of doubles to Akron last night with 9000lbs in the front trailer and 8000lbs in the back.

    Night line haul if they have it. It’s what I do and I like it. I think you guys are better ran then we are, I’m going to see what happens management is struggling right now we’ve got issues because others have been getting screwed too, so I’ll see if management can fix it. Still going to upgrade my license though.

    brought back 2. 13K in one and 11K in the other. I don’t know… back in 2019 used to 20000 in each.

    What does that mean the system is starting to thin out and because of that they want to keep all the freight they can?

    Central transport seems to be doing a bit better on the equipment end I must say seems like they are getting off of their 20 year cycle. They literally fly by me on the turn pike every night, but I tell you this their drivers always flash the lights to say thank you and all that stuff, so who knows what's going on there maybe they are improving lol. Out of all the drivers I deal with on the turnpike Central is not the worst not by a long shot, not even close, all of the LTL guys are pretty decent they all do a good job in my opinion. It's some of these sleeper cab guys on the other hand....

    Hell no don’t go to Central. Trust me I know people that work or worked there. Also try Pitt Ohio. They seem like good company as well. They have terminal in Cleveland
     

  9. Yea I keep hearing that. I’m a year short of Pitts age requirement!

    Stay away from Central…. I see at least 2 broke down every night on I90. Plus look up there horrible dock with no doors in Chicago Ridge, IL. They basically just moved into an abandoned old Roadway terminal. They do look busy at least.

    They busy because they haul freight for cheap. I delivered there like last year. Horrible horrible lol

    I’m surprised they had permission from the village to move there. I heard that soil was contaminated or something. They had a major fuel spill back in the day. I never got the full story.
